Lorenzo is making his comeback at Silverstone this weekend following two months on the sidelines to recover from a back injury sustained in a practice crash at June’s Dutch TT. Failing to crack the top 20 all weekend throughout practice, Lorenzo was 0.862 seconds adrift of struggling Tech 3 KTM rider Hafizh Syahrin in Q1 and ended up 3.4s off of Honda teammate Marc Marquez’s pole time. After admitting on Friday he had a greater “fear” of crashing and aggravating his injuries , Lorenzo said pushing to bridge the gap to Syahrin would have made him “risk a lot”. “I’m almost a second behind Syahrin, and to go a second faster I have to risk a lot and now it’s not worth it,” Lorenzo said. “With the body I have now, it’s already a lot to do the race.

Sixth. That's Shane van Gisbergen's worst finishing position in a circuit race since September last year. The Kiwi has been in the form of his life for the past seven months. It started by winning his first Bathurst 1000 in October last year. He then flew straight home to New Zealand, jumped in an AP4-spec Mitsubishi Mirage and won the Battle of Jacks Ridge rally. If gravel rallying wasn't diverse enough, van Gisbergen hung around for the New Zealand Grand Prix at Hampton Downs in January. He hadn't raced a Toyota Racing Series car in well over a decade and is several feet taller than most single-seater jockeys. His fire extinguisher went off right before the race and he had to start from pitlane, but he won the race. In February he went back to Bathurst and won both heats of the Supercars season-opening Mount Panorama 500. Exactly a fortnight before the next round at Sandown, he took a tumble off his mountain bike and broke his collarbone and three ribs. Immediate … [Read more...] about How van Gisbergen’s Supercars win streak stacks up in the history books
Goes on sale March 2018. A heavily revised 1.6-liter diesel engine will join Honda Civic ’s European range starting March next year. Generating 120 horsepower (89 kilowatts) and 221 pound-feet (300 Newton-meters) of torque, the motor provides a decent acceleration from a standstill to 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) in 10.4 seconds. While the power numbers are almost identical to the previous 1.6-liter diesel engine of the brand, the new unit is far more efficient. Significant improvements have been made to the exhaust gas treatment system, while the cylinder friction has been reduced thanks to pistons made from highly durable chromium-molybdebnum steel alloy.
